Abstract:

BMI View: We expect strong growth for trade in Malaysia over the coming years, boosting freight volumes for all modes. Rail will experience the biggest increase, catering for construction material transfers while road freight will dominate in terms of tonnage with industries utilising the country s extensive road network for their cargo transfer needs. ...Regional trade agreements have developed connections and boosted bilateral trade with an important development being the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreed on October - ---- between -- countries including Malaysia, and key trading partners Singapore, US and Japan. Implementation of measures proposed by the deal, including lower trade barriers will be gradual and initiate following parliamentary approval from each member, which is expected to be a challenging process in certain members such as the US. Nevertheless we anticipate that over the medium to long term Malaysian trade and freight volumes will be increased by the partnership. Air freight development is restricted by higher costs per tonne and its use for specific cargo. ...This shows that air freight will continue to serve certain demand markets and we project steady and slow growth for this mode. Rail freight will see the strongest growth going forward with new networks servicing demand for construction materials

...The Malay half of the population has a constitutionally enshrined special position in society, amounting to positive discrimination in jobs and wealth. Resentment is an obvious by-product, and the challenge is to produce enough prosperity to reduce tension. ...
